It's a small miracle every morning when my husband and I get our three kids on the school bus on time. You can often catch one of us, semi-dressed, making a run for the bus stop at the corner. But by 8am we congratulate ourselves that we made it, kickback and enjoy the kid-free silence. That's when you'll find us collapsed on the couch for a few minutes with our morning cup of coffee. For those five minutes we catch up before starting our day.
It's only recently that I've become a coffee drinker. I'm naturally caffeinated LOL so I've never needed that extra boost. A couple years ago I got my coffee drinking husband his favorite present of all time - a Keurig. Every morning he made his cup of joe, grabbed a piece of cake and sat on the couch and watched me workout. I was beginning to feel left out...or maybe just jealous that he was relaxing while I was sweating away to T25. Could have been the cake thing too.
My husband drinks his (caffeinated) with just a splash of 2% milk. That was not gonna work for me. It took several trips to ShopRite but I've finally perfected my coffee trifecta. I need decaf and sweet! Love my Dunkin' Donuts decaf! There are so many coffee sweetner brands but Truvia is my natural sweetener of choice. Paired with my sugar free International Delight Caramel Macchiato creamer - it makes for a delicious cup! I actually went thru a few coffee creamer flavors before settling on Caramel. French Vanilla is a close second :)
ShopRite is actually running a promo right now - buy 2 participating coffee products and 1 participating creamer and get a free box of Truvia Natural Sweetener 40ct now thru 3/12, while supplies last. And if you're like me, you can't say no to free!
Some days I need a bigger cup. That's when I pull out my 'Mama needs some coffee' mug.
This is as dressed as I get first thing in the morning. I'm usually in my workout gear with whatever shoes are closest to the door and one of my husband's cozy jackets.
